Black Seed is committed to sustainability and reducing food waste. 

In 2023, we redirected over 43 tons of food waste from going to landfills.
Here is how we did it: 

Brewing beer with shredded surplus bagels and local NY state hops and grains with our friends at Return Brewing.

Donating bagels to be redistributed to people experiencing food insecurity with Rescuing Leftover Cuisine.

Baking our own delicious cookies using flour milled from unsold bagels.

Recycling bacon fat into biodiesel fuel with NYC Clean Air Group.


We've partnered with renowned chef Tamar Adler, author of The Everlasting Meal Cookbook, to find ways to recycle your bagel & catering leftovers in tasty new recipes
